A week from tomorrow, Monday, January 12, the Hall of Fame will announce the results of this year's BBWAA balloting. There are 23 names on this year's ballot; Rickey Henderson is the only first-time name who seems assured of induction.
There are several other potential inductees this year, including Jim Rice, Bert Blyleven and Andre Dawson, who is a favorite of many here.
I've attached a poll for us to make our Hall choices. Unfortunately, the polling structure here doesn't allow you to make multiple choices (on the writers' ballot, you can vote for up to 10). You can vote for only ONE player on the poll. So, I'm posting it with the assumption that you would all vote for Henderson -- I left him off the poll. Vote for the ONE player OTHER than Henderson that you would most like to see enshrined. Then, in the comments, you can post your entire ballot, including Henderson.
My ballot: Henderson, Andre Dawson, Bert Blyleven, Tommy John, Lee Smith.
Make sense? Have at it.
